Saddler Shop In Whiteparish - a Memory of Whiteparish.
My great-aunt and uncle, Edna and Jack Hyde, lived all their married life in Whiteparish. Jack Hyde started working from about 14 years old, in the saddler's shop. Mr Till owned the shop. When Mr Till passed away, Jack carried on the business, and worked there up until he retired. He had worked there for 50 years or more. I have happy memories of visiting them in Whiteparish, as a child, and even after I had grown up, and had children of my own. I remember going there as a child with my grandmother, she was Jack's sister. We used to stay for tea and cakes. Then I would go down to the saddler's shop, and watch Jack sew the leather. Sadly Jack and Edna are no longer here, but I have happy memories of them, and of Whiteparish.
